Building the ideal collaboration platform comes with requirements. It needs to enable a post-PC workplace while protecting existing IT investments.

Not all collaboration solution vendors have kept pace with this changing environment. See how Cisco compares by selecting any of the blogs, videos or tabs below before you get locked in.

Ongoing Commitment to Non-Windows Platforms

Using personal mobile devices at work is here to stay. And many organizations are using anytime, anywhere collaboration capabilities to substantially improve business agility and enhance productivity.

To promote this mobility, you need your vendors to be committed to providing solutions that work across a wide range of devices, platforms, and browsers.

Real Cost Assessment

Some vendors offer "free" collaboration licensing deals or include them with other products. Their software may not include additional licensing costs, but often new hardware, implementation, and support services are needed to deploy the full solution. Comprehensive Cisco solutions are designed to work with any platform, including Microsoft, Apple, and Android systems.

Avoid surprises. Make sure that you understand all the factors affecting the real cost of ownership
